The problem isn't the AHL development, it seems like a great place for small scorers to develop.

The problem is when they come to the Oilers they are stuck on the 4th line with horrible linemates and aren't sent down when they should be (MPS & Lander 2 seasons ago)
Can't even argue that they are getting loads of points but are defensively inadequate, Arco was a very good two-way player in the nhl.

Too bad Nelson never played a game with boys on the bus, he has reached the pinnacle of his Oilers career. The best that he can do now is get a job working for the Red Wings lol.
